Kolo Toure, voted ‘Man of the Match’, Joe Hart, City boss Roberto Mancini and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger give their verdicts following last night’s 0-0 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

Kolo Toure

‘Strikers win you games but defenders win you titles…’

‘It was a really difficult game. Arsenal are really in form at the moment. The draw is really good.’

‘It was difficult to have chances because Arsenal played very well, but it’s good that we didn’t lose the game.’


Joe Hart

‘That just shows how much grit and determination we’ve got. We led a charmed life but the goals are the same size in every game so they’ve got to put it into the net.’



Roberto Mancini

‘We wanted to win but Arsenal played better than us…We defended very well in the second half. If we came here with all our players I think it could have been another game but after four games, 10 points in 10 days is good…It was important not to lose this game.’

‘They had good chances in the first 15-20 minutes. After that they had good possession but didn’t have more chances to score.’

‘It’s not a sending off for Zabaleta. For me, two yellow cards was enough.’


Arsene Wenger

We are frustrated but I am proud of our performance individually and collectively. We faced a Man City who were determined not to lose and set up to prevent conceding goals…City defended very well and in numbers.’

‘We were unlucky. We hesitated sometimes and their ‘keeper had a good game. That made it a nil nil. For me it was more of a positive nil nil than a negative one.’

‘No matter what kind of problem you face you have to resolve it and tonight we were not able to do that despite our quality.’
